At Mercedes there is a lot of talk, sometimes more than others, about electric propulsion. In Stuttgart they even invented the EQ sub-brand almost five years ago to distinguish battery-powered models, with the initial prospect of having about ten in the range by 2022 and covering between 15% and 25% of global production. So far, however, concretely, only the smart EQ, a niche car, being a microcar, and the EQC, for which at least 80,000 euros are needed, incentives aside, which make it affordable for a few.

It will not be a car that you buy with small change, mind you, because you will need at least 50,000 euros, always net of state aid. But consider that we are talking about the same amount necessary to buy a diesel GLA 220d of the same power. Which is encouraging.
